New York Times bestselling author Ariana Huffington takes another sweeping look at how right wing zealots have taken charge of the Republican Party and the government--and the American leadership who let it happen. Huffington reveals everything we need to know about the dirty game of Washington politics, asking key questions such as how did self-righteous Republicans gain control of our government? Why have they been allowed to redefine the right and betray true American democratic values? Huffington takes a long view of our political history and leadership and to remind us that at one time America's leaders were people of daring, passion, and intelligence. By contrast, today's leaders are "dangerous fanatics", and she offers a blueprint for returning power to this country's rightful owners--the people.
